're even up both candidates with women voters telling women not to trust mitt romney telling what he said on the campaign trail he wouldn't move -- >> time and again the president told us he would take on some of these things but hasn't. then he turns around and tries to blame others. congress won't get together. congress won't get together unless there is strong leader that puts them together. bill: john, thank you. want to drill down on the billboard and show you a little bit of the strategy mitt romney put in place over the last week alone. specifically in places like ohio, virginia and florida. he is going to some of these counties where the president won big over senator mccain four years ago. specifically i want to take to you summit county here. this is northeastern ohio. heavily democratic four years ago. 59-41% in summit county president obama beat senator mccain. we saw mitt romney there just the other day with chris christie, the governor from new jersey. down here in virginia, also, 13 electoral votes, highly important for both men this year. southeastern virginia, four years
liberal both the way he governed since the 2010 midterms and in his campaigning. and i think the romney campaign and rnc have an ad out right now calling president obama a liberal. identifying him as such for voters which makes voters jobs a little bit easier. this is opening for romney campaign to continue to make that point and tie his policies with that idealogical label. martha: steve, they will be both out in force in ohio over the course of this week. rob portman will be campaigning with mitt romney as will chris christie. talk to me about the tightening in ohio. >> ohio, it is, isn't too much to say ohio is crucial obviously. if you look at the polls i think there was a sense both in public polling and internal polling for the campaigns that ohio was slipping away from republicans in a state that they need to win. now seems there is some tightening. there was a poll out in michigan last night shows president obama only up three points there. if president obama is only up three points in michigan and that's a good poll, it's likely that ohio is back to a dead-heat which insures th
half of those likely voters surveyed think president obama is more moderate th mitt romney. i think by any objective measure that is simply not true. if you look the way president obama has governed both before the 2010 midterms and particularly after the 2010 midterms when he did nothing to moderate his positions. he did not do a bill clinton style shift toe the center where he tried to triangulate. he has been proud, rather aggressive liberal both the way he governed since the 2010 midterms and in his campaigning. and i think the romney campaign and rnc have an ad out right now calling president obama a liberal. identifying him as such for voters which makes voters jobs a little bit easier. this is opening for romney campaign to continue to make that point and tie his policies with that idealogical label. martha: steve, they will be both out in force in ohio over the course of this week. rob portman will be campaigning with mitt romney as will chris christie. talk to me about the tightening in ohio. >> ohio, it is, isn't too much to say ohio is crucial obviously. if you look at th
, while romney need to convert 2008 obama voters. rob, paula, last night here in kentucky, both of them got a lot of help from their running mates. >> karen, can we say there was a winner? can we call it a draw? i was looking at several polls, three gave it to paul ryan. three gave the to joe biden. was there a winner? or was this a tie? >> yeah, paula those instant reactions were showing voters were evenly split. but i think if you have to pick who really got what they wanted to get out of this debate it was vice president biden. the democrats are very happy because he basically stopped the bleeding from last weak's, the president's performance at last week's debate. he did two things very well. one, he promoted the president's policies and defended the president's record and did it by connecting with voters. and, that's not something that president obama was able to do last week. he also cam out aggressively against the romney policies by going after paul ryan very strongly. that is also something we didn't see last week from president obama. but congressman ryan really held his own t
on the vice president to kind of move both of those lines of argument forward tonight. >> do you think we're going to hear from the vice president some of the things that the president did not mention, the 47% comment that mitt romney made, the role of bain capital, the issue of how much he pays in taxes? >> well, i think some of the things about romney himself. >> he has made arguments like that, repeatedly, dozen of times, it is central to his view of the debate about the role of government. he has repeatedly argued that once we get to a point where a majority of americans are receiving government benefits of one sort or another, they will vote themselves more benefits at the expense of those who are paying taxes. i mean, mitt romney has, as you know, and sean hannity renounce whatted he said about the 47%, but it is essential to paul ryan's view of the world, so it will be interesting to see what he says about it, and mitt romney's later comments about it. >> i want to you see this. again, our viewers were looking at air force two. we're waiting for the vice president to get out of the
watches, but really about a cluster, maybe six, eight states will make or break this race. romney made up a lot of ground since last week's debate for sure. >> i don't know if this one will move the needle. both appealed to their base really. joe biden didn't make any fatal flaws. and neither did paul ryan in this one. but, you know let everybody spin it how they want. i looked at six different polls. three gave it to biden. three gave it to paul ryan. >> it's a draw essentially. >> pretty much is a draw. >> again, i know the media's inclination, folk's inclination to pay attention to stylistic issues rather than substantive one -- the water drinking, laughing, grinning, we saw more of joe biden's teeth than his dentist last night. looking at the issues iran taxes, abortion medicare the role of faith, how they govern there are some sharp differences between the two men. i hope people paid attention to that other than the theatrics of the night. >> martha raddatz, our colleague here at abc, i think she did a fantastic job. really just keeping everybody in check. >> martha

? >> absolutely. everything matters from this point on. i expect both campaigns tonight to try to -- ryan continue to try to reach out to those women that romney pulled in and bind is going to go at women, i think trying to win them back. that's the group that's up for grabs right now because of the last performance of romney. tonight is going to count and it's going matter. everything from here on in. megyn: i want to talk to you about the demographics. karl rove had an extraordinary piece out talking about how the demographics are changing in key states. we'll do that next. stay with me. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.
